Title: Mech Madness Season 3 - SIGNUPS END OCTOBER 31st!
Post by: FaceBagman on July 04, 2019, 01:15:50 PM
Mech Madness is now looking for new applicants for Season 3! After a wild Season 2 successfully wrapped up under a new format, I made the announcement that entries will be accepted for next season right up until a TBA due-date. I am currently making some technical changes to how the MM edit of the RoboGames arena functions with OotAs and multibots; once this is complete, an end date for signups will officially be announced. But definitely start sending your robot design files & any AI to me as soon as you please!

ENTRY DETAILS:



BUILD RULES:



TOURNAMENT RULES:



I'll record fights first, then cut them as necessary, then add in commentary & post-graphics.

And I rise! Like the water in an unnervingly clogged toilet!!

Most of my bots are definitely coming back. Mech Madness is the thing that got me into RA2, so I'm hella hyped.

It's great to see everyone interested in entering, especially newer faces! :)

I have read over the new rule changes multiple times and think that MM3 is now ready to begin accepting robot applications! I'm hoping to fix some issues I had with the RoboGames arena last time and turn the trenches into actual OotA zones during the next 2 weeks. When that happens, I'll set an end date for signups. Tentatively looking at the middle of October, though possibly later.

Just PMed you. Even if something isn't acceptable as of yet, plenty of time to rework it.

Also, I'm kinda getting to these as I can. Mondays & Tuesdays are probably the days you won't hear from me until Tuesday night, because I'm quite busy with IRL work all day. :)

Well, now I gotta look in my RA2 folder for what I could chip in, maybe even AI since I'm having fun with some of the quirky .py files now.

Now that I've got my OW4 bots out of the way, time for me to focus on this.  One of the bots I'm building for it is gonna be quite unique.

Just posting an update here to confirm that the final date of signups is October 31st! Every robot must be submitted before 11:59 EST. Obviously, if I need you to correct something that would otherwise make your entry violate the rules or lead to it not functioning, I can give a little leeway there.

Additionally, I've spoiler-tagged a list of the 110 Season 3 entries I've received thus far in the OP. If you don't see yours at first glance, don't worry! Expect even more to be confirmed in the coming weeks. :)

Just checking but are you using damaging wedgelets or the non-damaging ones?

The ol' damage dealing ones  :puke:

I don't mind them too much though. The only time they get obnoxious is static-wedgelet-on-chassis push til KO fights, which are fortunately getting rarer and rarer.

20 days left til deadline, so I'd better get to AIing and submitting my remaining entries.

Oh sh**, I totally forgot, I need to get a sixth entry together and then send them all over. I've had way too much to do recently.

Finished and submitted three w/ AI, would've entered three more but their AI will be a task, and as I was ill at the weekend (plus took part in PWS 8) those remaining bots will have to wait longer for tournament time.

Koi, I think yours should be ok!

I'm running a bit behind in reviewing everything, I came down with strep early this week and had no medical help here on vacation; so it's been rough. I will work as fast as I can!

Post by: Nightraven Shade on November 01, 2019, 12:03:20 PM
its cool, hope it clears up. worse case if any of the bots dont pass tech checks the builder can just have a bit time to fix the issue while conferences are being drawn.

I just checked my sent PMs and didn't see the msg where I sent two bots.  Gws btw.
